Killer Mike, 2 Chainz congratulate Keisha Lance Bottoms on her mayoral win

Atlanta is pretty happy with its new mayor.

December 06, 2017

Keisha Lance Bottoms won a tight race against Mary Norwood tonight, and Atlanta natives are celebrating hard.


While Bottoms certainly garnered support from politicians like Kamala Harris and Cory Booker across the nation, Atlanta's best and brightest didn't sit this election out at all, rallying voters online and off with endorsements from Killer Mike, 2 Chainz, Ludacris, Jeezy, and Big Boi rolling in. Moving against seemingly conservative support for the more moderate Norwood, Atlanta brought home a tentative win for Bottoms. However, the congratulations might have come in too soon, as a recount is possible.

We'll have to wait until next week to find out, but if the rest of the South feels up to the challenge, it might finally be time to throw some D's on Alabama again too.

On December 6, this post was updated to include additional details about the recount.
